NMVTIS Vehicle History Reports

The National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) is a federal database containing automobile information from states, insurance carriers and the salvage industry.

Auto Data Direct (ADD) is an official NMVTIS Vehicle History Report provider. ADD's vehicle history reports provide information from a vehicle's current title, including the vehicle's brand history, title history, and any reported odometer readings. NMVTIS vehicle reports will also indicate if a vehicle has been reported as “salvage” or a total loss by an insurance company or a self-insuring organization, and lists reports from auto recyclers who may have handled the vehicle.

Auto Dealers

ADD's consumer NMVTIS report format is designed to provide easy-to-understand NMVTIS information to potential buyers in an attractive, multi-page format. No subscription is required to purchase NMVTIS vehicle history reports through ADD; however, corporate entities may wish to establish an ADD account to retrieve NMVTIS vehicle history reports at a reduced, volume-based rate.

California requires its auto dealers to obtain a NMVTIS vehicle history report for every used vehicle that will be offered for retail sale. Visit ADD's California Dealer page for more information.
